Morrison & Foerster LLP

Morrison & Foerster is a firm of exceptional credentials. Our name is synonymous with a commitment to client service that informs everything that we do. We are recognized throughout the world as a leader in providing cutting-edge legal advice on matters that are redefining practices and industries.

But the Morrison & Foerster name tells only part of our story. In the 1970s, when teletype was used to send overseas cables, the firm purposely chose "mofo" as our teletype address. The nickname stuck, and we later decided to use it as our domain name.

In many ways, the MoFo nickname is an affectionate reminder that while we are very serious about our clients' work, we don't take ourselves too seriously.

We collaborate across a global network of 16 offices located in key technology and financial centers in the United States, Asia, and Europe. Our clients include some of the largest financial institutions, Fortune 100 companies, and leading technology and life sciences companies. We also represent investment funds and startup companies, and over the years have supported many in their growth and development as leading industry players and household brands.
